NFL Bye Weeks: Odell Beckham

Athlon Sports 2017 Fantasy Football Preview

Get ready, we're close to the NFL's first bye week. And when it comes to NFL bye weeks, there’s a large percentage of those who play fantasy football that find them to be nothing but a nuisance. Well it just so happens it seems the NFL may agree.

Be sure to check out the 2018 NFL Bye Weeks schedule.

This season, the number of bye weeks has been reduced from nine to seven. So fantasy owners will only have to worry about them from Weeks 5-11. This does mean that these weeks will be a little more packed (four or more teams on bye in six of the seven weeks involved), but it’s not like the byes were going to go away completely in the first place.

So now we know when which teams are on bye, those who like to prepare for their draft have two options – take the byes into consideration or ignore them completely. At least you can’t say you haven’t been warned.
